It is probably the heater itself. The best thing is to thaw out the coils and see if it happens again. You can test heater and timer with multi-meter to see if you are getting any reading

Why does are upright freezer not defrost and the coils freeze up to the point that the freezer no longer keeps the food frozen and we have had to turn the freezer off and defrost twice in the past 3...


Not defrosting indicates the heater element is not coming on or timer not sending signal to turn it on. Get access to the heater, check its continuity with a VOM meter. If OK then check for voltage at the heater terminals if voltage present, heater is bad, timer OK, If no voltage timer bad or wires going to heater have broken circuit, not likely, usually timer issue. Also make sure you clean out the defrost drain, trap and line at the back of the unit while you are at it.

Evaporator coils icing up


The only possible source of water to freeze on the coils in such a short time is from the outside atmosphere. Check the door seals.

I have an Amana A4TXNWFWW01 and at the top part of the fridge there is two vents. These vent freeze over and the fridge quits working. Does anyone know what is going on?


The defrost heater has a defrost limit thermostat ( a small disc with two wires) that is attached to the cooling coil. This defrost limit thermostat is a switch that will open when the coil is warm enough after defrost. If the defrost heater is staying on too long it can create steam which will condense and freeze on the vents after defrost period terminates.

Refrigerator is cold, freezer not freezing


Amana refrig have 2 main problems . 1 is the defrost bimetal ( 1" cylinder at the top right on the freezer coils with 2 wires ) and the other is a refrigerant leak where the copper tubing joins the aluminum tubing at the freezer coils ( evaporator coils ) . If your freezer fan is not working and you have frost on the freezer coils then replace the bimetal as this also controls the defrost heater ( defrost thermostat ) . If you have no frost on the coils ( for both checks , you will have to remove the inside rear freezer panel , maybe 12 screws ) , then a refrigerant leak has happened and the best solution would be to replace the refrig .

I have an Amana Side by Side. The freezer section


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the adaptive defrost control.Part 13 on this diagram of your fridge controls. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=ASD2625KES&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1268&modelName=AMANA-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00005&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0612301&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Freezer is partially freezing


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air


check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
